"This recipe came together from a few different recipes, and from having tried a number of varieties over the years. I generally use dry chickpeas that have been soaked and cooked - of course you could use tinned, which I think gives you about 1 1/2 cups when drained - so if you're using canned just adjust the water accordingly to get the consistency you want. For the garlic, if you don't have any roasted heads ready to go, you could also saute garlic to mellow it out (rather than use raw). I like to throw a few heads of garlic into the oven whenever it's in use for something else - saves using all that energy for just garlic when you need some. (Note...prep time doesn't include cooking the chickpeas or roasting the garlic..)."

"This is one of the best Hummus recipes I have ever tasted. I roasted the garlic as directed and it made such a difference in the overall dish. We served this dish with pita chips. I will definitely make this dish again. Made for PAC, 2011."
"What a wonderful, flavourful hummus recipe! I luved the addition of roasted garlic with the earthy tahini, fresh parsley and fruity cumin. This was soooo good, I really couldnt stop eating it. :) Mmmmm!
I will definitely make this again and again and again!
What a winner! Thank you so much for sharing this awesome spin on hummus with us, magpie!
Made and reviewed for Everyday is a Holiday Tag Game January 2010."
"Love, love hummus, but dang those carby pita breads. FANTASTIC! Made for Everyday is A Holiday."
"Yum, delicious hummus! I just ate this out of the bowl. Thanks! Made for Vegetarian Tag, June 2012."
"A great version of a classic! I used roasted garlic that I had left from Recipe #369678 and the roasted flavour really shines through in this recipe. I cut the recipe back for the two of us and we enjoyed this homemade bread and salad for a summer lunch on the terrace. Made for your VIP recipe in Veg'N'Swap for May! Congrats and merci! FT:-)"
"This is a wonderful and easy hummus recipe! As magpie suggested, I put some garlic in my oven when I was baking bread on the weekend, so I had it ready when I made this. I used two cans of 14 oz chickpeas, which was about 2 1/2 cups, so I needed a little bit of extra water, and my 1/2 tsp measurements where heaping to account for it. I didn't measure the lemon juice, just added the juice of one lemon. With the food processor, this was so easy! I'll definately make this again and again! Thanks, magpie!
